BACKGROUND CONTEXT Multilevel cervical myelopathy can be treated with anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) or corpectomy via the anterior approach and laminoplasty via the posterior approach. Till date, there is no proven superior approach. PURPOSE To elucidate any potential advantage of one approach over the other with regard to clinical(More)
OBJECTIVES We report the natural history of voiding function in men with clinically localized prostate cancer after robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RLRP), describing the trend of functional recovery, which is currently not well described using the robot-assisted laparoscopic approach. MATERIALS AND METHODS We determined the impact on(More)
Fixation of displaced patella fractures with tension band wiring is a commonly performed technique. Broken metal wires after such surgeries are not uncommon, however, intra-articular wire migration after failure of the tension band wires in the patella is uncommon and rarely described. In this study, we report a case of locking knee symptoms secondary to(More)
BACKGROUND We report the functional impact and natural history of cutaneous hypoesthesia after plate internal fixation for mid shaft clavicle fractures with a horizontal skin incision from year 2009 to 2011. MATERIALS AND METHODS 38 patients had complete followup data with an average followup period of 23.2 months (range 8-43 months). The impact of(More)
Retrograde cement extrusion into the nutrient vessels of the femur is a rare phenomenon in uncomplicated cemented hemiarthroplasty of the hip; this is a report on three cases. Routine postoperative radiographs showed a continuous dense linear opacity arising from the posterior medial region of the femur. Computed tomography (CT) scans revealed no evidence(More)
We report 2 cases of spontaneous spinal epidural haematoma after antiplatelet treatment. One patient was on ticlodipine therapy and the other was on aspirin and clopidogrel. Both diagnoses were made using magnetic resonance imaging. One patient underwent multilevel laminectomies and posterior spinal fusion within 24 hours of symptom onset and achieved(More)
INTRODUCTION We describe the natural history of Asian adult soft tissue sarcomas (STSs) in the extremities and predict prognosticative factors for local recurrence, metastasis and tumour-related death. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between January 1999 and May 2009, 67 adult patients with first presentation STSs of extremity sites underwent surgical treatment at(More)
